Since childhood, I had a problem in managing my hair. I used to spend hours in front of the mirror to set a hair style that will suit my personality and from which I could gain some praises. It took me years to realize how I would be able to steal the limelight just because of my hair style along with my attire.

In fact, your tresses say a lot about how you carry yourself and show the level of confidence in you. For this reason, it’s irrational not to pay attention to your manes as they are the first impression for you.

                Let’s have a look which hair style will suit you more according to the shape of your face. I am sure, it will facilitate in spending less time in detangling and managing them in shorter period of time.

        I.            ROUND FACE The secret hair style for a person having a round face is to deflect the roundness of the face.

Best Hair Style – Long hair will look gorgeous on you as it will lengthen your face. Get a layered cut done with first layer starting from chin. Have curly hair? Don’t worry. Flaunt hair having same length without any layers.

Have natural wavy hair? Great! Let them be like this, they will look stylish on you.

What to Avoid – Try to avoid short layers as it will add body to your hair, which will make your face look rounder. Also stay away from center parts and fullness at the sides of the ears which will result in a wider looking face.

Famous Personalities – Emma Stone and Kirsten Dunst

      II.            OVAL FACE If you have oval shape face, you are among the luckiest women. You can sport any hair style with grace and elegance.

Best Hair Style – The safest hair style would be long layered hair with layers near the cheek bones or you can have blunt and side bangs or have short hair cut.

What to Avoid – Do not display too much volume on the top if you don’t want your face to look longer.

Famous Personalities – Salma Hayek and Demi Moore

    III.            SQUARE FACE Go for a look that will defocus your angular facial structures.

Best Hair Style – Keep the length long. It can be straight, curly, wavy or choppy ends. If you have short hair, go for rounded, curly or chin length tapered bob. Play with fringes or go dramatic with extra height on top as it will create an illusion of longer and narrower face and will make it look rectangular.

What to Avoid – Do not have center parts and styles that are long and straight.

Famous Personalities – Jessica Simpson and Mandy Moore

    IV.            HEART SHAPED FACE Keep your hair flowing around your face till jaw line.

Best Hair Style – Bob hair cut is perfect for you. Side parting, swept forward layers or long wavy hair or shoulder length bob – you can carry anything with confidence.

What to Avoid – Say no to side swept bangs and straight hair. Don’t play too much with your crown area as it will give an appearance of longer and narrower chin.

Famous Personalities – Ashley Geene and Reese Witherspoon

I have put the description of the most basic face shapes here. A person can have Diamond shaped or Pear shaped face as well. Depending on your facial outlining, choose the best hair style for yourself and let the others be jealous of you and your sophisticated style statement!!!
